A New Era Of Food Security: Chicken Protectionism In Malaysia, Singapore Recovered Quickly

Prime minister Ismail halted exports of chicken from June 1, in reaction to growing costs and an attempt to reduce prices for domestics.

Singapore is a big importer of chicken, with Malaysia supplying roughly a third of total imports. This posed a big problem for Singapore.

“Singapore’s chicken supply remains stable thanks to the quick response of our importers, distributors, and supermarkets, working with the Singapore Food Agency,” Tan said.

Malaysia is said to be able to fix the shortage by next month, before the Aidiladha celebration in July.

Indonesia recently banned palm oil exports temporarily, India restricted wheat and sugar exports, and Serbia and Kazakhstan have imposed quotas on grain shipments.
